how important this day was, martin luther king jr. day, a federal holiday which was controversial, at the time. mlk in spirit is a more controversial hero. obama rooted his appeals to traditional values, although they involve new advances and sacrifices, he put it in that form. also, briefly, what johnathan said, such an important point. there were four words in this inaugural that didn't appear in the 2009 inaugural, gay, medicare, medicaid, social security, both on the issue of rights and the issue of supporting each other. not as a broad, gauzy principle, but in the specific debates we're also having in this country, about whether or not we can afford to take care of each other and afford to make good on the commitments we have made to the elderly, the veterans, also to our fellow man. >> this is the day for that. >> it was all in there. it was all in there, and i think that is why it moved, as you said, lawrence, moved people from all walks of life. >> krystal, thank you for dressing up. you actually went to a ball. >> yes, i did. >> johnathan, i couldn't be more disappointed.
. and not just get in these long unending debates. martin luther king used to call it the paralysis of analysis. >> we may will be coming to the end of one. with medicare and social security and medicaid. what was so striking about the speech yesterday was that obama -- the lack of an olive branch to republicans that we've heard from him before. when you talk about the summer of 2011, he was talking openly about willing potentially to have a deal that included some modifications to medicare. there was talk of raising the medicare eligibility age would be on the table. didn't hear anything about that yesterday. and it raises the question of has he now reached a point where no, i'm not going to cut a deal like that anymore with republicans. that's the past. >> krystal, steve, thank you for your time tonight. >> thanks, reverend. >> be sure to catch krystal and steve on "the cycle" right here on msnbc. >>> ahead, 40 years after roe versus wade, abortion rights are under assault in the states. that's next. >>> they're the best political duo going. obama/biden. what's next for them? >>> and everyone

, by activism and blood and above all, from john adams to elizabeth stand ton to martin luther king, by a stubborn adherence to a notion that we are all created equal and we deserve nothing less than a great republic worthy of our consent. the theme of this year's inaugural is, faith in america's future. the perfect embodiment of this unshakable confidence in the ongoing success of our collective journey is an event from our past. i speak of the improbable completion of the capitol dome and capping it with a statue of freedom which occurred 150 years ago in 1863. when abraham lincoln took office two years earlier, the dome above us was a half-built eyesore. conventional wisdom was that it should be left unfinished until the war ended. given the travails and financial needs of the times. but to president lincoln, the half-finished dome symbolized a half-divided nation. lincoln said, if people see the capitol going on, it is a sign we intend the union shall go on. so despite the conflict which engulfed the nation and surrounded the city, the dome continued to rise. on december 2nd, 18

the president's children, the ridiculous statements that were made about slavery and martin luther king. what this is doing is this is isolating the advocates of the gun manufacturers into an increasingly small minority. these kind of statements were very good for the majority of us that want to see some common sense measures. and, you know, the most absurd statement that these advocates, these gun manufacturer advocates say is this is an encroachment on the second amendment. let's be clear for the viewers here. there's been one case in the last hundred years, the heller case that there was an individual right to bear a hand gunn inside your home. that's the extent to which the supreme court ever recognized the second amendment right. even in that case justice scalia said things like assault weapons, background checks, high-capacity magazines are totally on the table. so those gun nuts that are suggesting that this ask an encroachment on the second amendment have no idea what the second amendment says and have never read the only case that has ever held that there is an individual right to be
, the president took his oath today on two bibles, one once used by dr. martin luther king. of course today is the marking of that day, mlk day, and one of abraham lincoln. how do you see this moment in the context of that struggle because that was resonant and poignant, wasn't it? >> it was very powerful, and keep in mind he said something, martin, that tied it all together. he said that we realized long ago that we could not survive and thrive as half slave state and half free. and basically i think what he was saying is we've come a long way, and i think he showed what lincoln did to make the country stronger, again having a vision of what we could do, and then i think he tried to use that to say, okay, now a lot has happened in between those times. we still face difficulties, but let's, again, be inspired by the aspiration of those who came before us so that each person could pursue happiness, you know, life, liberty, and property, and do it in a way that made sense. so i really think -- as i listened to chris, i couldn't help but think of a note i wrote while the president was speaking
